Line up your energy before taking action. Imagine, envision, dream, see the best possible outcome in your mind first. Use all your senses to feel how you want to feel. Then, when you’re ready to take action, you’ll come from a place of inspiration, not motivation.
This September I’m starting a paint meme –
Any paint projects are welcome – furniture, walls, spray painting, crackle – you name it! So, please check back!
Have you seen the movie yet? I’m dying to see it, but I’m not a real movie-goer, so I just may wait ‘til it comes out on DVD.
First, I basecoated the canvas with Yellow Ochre & then a wash of Raw Sienna. Those colors seem to have Italy, India & Bali feelings to me. All 3 paintings in the series have the same background. Then I transferred the pattern with graphite paper.
I actually took these picture from the video I shot. No, it’s not ready yet. I’ll post it when it is. I have to put on my ‘big girl’ pants and learn how to edit video, I guess.
Anyway, I basecoated it with Charcoal Gray, then added a lighter grey, then highlighted with White. It’s just like coloring, only with a paintbrush.
I used Tomato Spice for the tomato. It’s a wonderful red by Ceramcoat, but any red will do.
It was really simple & fun. I think it’s an easy PIY (paint it yourself) project, if you want to give it a try. I’ll have this available as a video kit, as soon as I get the editing thing down.
Here’s my question – do you like it with just the plate, fork & tomato?
‘Pray’ is next, and then ‘Love’!
I’m linking up to these parties today. Lots of great projects!
